The General Manager of the Sheffield Arena, Rob O’Shea, has announced that he is leaving the venue to focus on his event promotions company, Manifesto Events.

Having got his start in the music business as a gig promoter, O’Shea has continued to put on events while at the same time working in venues, at Sheffield Arena and previously the Manchester Apollo, over the last two decades.

“Promoting has always been a passion of mine but I have only been able to treat it as a hobby given the demands of running an arena”, says O’Shea. “There is a clear gap in the market for a Sheffield promoter who isn’t tied to a specific venue. I am looking forward to continuing to work with agents and promoters I worked with as Sheffield Arena GM in my new capacity”.

O’Shea launched Manifesto Events with fellow promoter Stuart Basford in 2012.
